Know what you mean Punkdoc.......planning the "perfect" scene!
I have a few acteas and associated variedly with Bowles golden grass, yellow hostas, salvia uliginosa, yellow rudbekias, artemisia Powys castle, miscanthus Variegatus, cornus Aurea. And yes in one planting, Punkdoc, I have an aconitum. Currently I have 3 varieties and love 'em all
i think those plants you mentioned would look together......complementary rather than contrasting. A blue scene would include a stooled eucalyptus, Elymus Magellanicus and a blue hosta with a blue salvia
